(Bette with Sheryl Crow)

I have no clue as to what Bette is…Mother Nature or the Green Goddess (but I think that’s a salad dressing if I’m not mistaken!)

I’d also like to know what song she and Sheryl Crow sang, if any. BTW, Sheryl looks hot!

Also note that the Charity Buzz OnLine Auction will be going on till November 8, 2007 Read More

Well Crap: Missprint on Wire Image About Susan Midler

I have been informed by the angel over my shoulder, Wendy, that the WireImage Photo said to be Bette and sis, Susan, is not correct.

It is believed to be Winnie Holzman, who wrote the book for the musical, “Wicked.” So somebody got something wrong….

Anyway, I wanted to make that correction.

Thank you Wendy!

Love, Mister D

PS: The embarrassing thing is that I sent the photo to Miss M’s office because I thought she might want a nice pic of her and her sister!!!! LOL

A Little Bit About The “Spell”

Mister D: I just thought this article was rather interesting. The song “I Put A Spell On You” has been around a long time with many different versions recorded with varied interpretations. And it’s Halloween time, so it’s appropriate.

From: The Sunday Telegraph London Date: October 28, 2007 Author: PAUL MORLEY

YOU COULD CONJURE UP A FINE, disquieting Halloween soundtrack using various uncanny and unlikely versions of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’s sleazy, psycho-hypnotic I Put a Spell on You. You would naturally feature Nina Simone’s blessed 1965 take, which turned an apparent near-novelty tune into a supreme, cathartic expression of soul and sexuality. The song became such a part of her repertoire that it formed the title of her 1992 autobiography.

Singers such as Van Morrison, Ray Charles, Bryan Ferry, Joe Cocker and Nick Cave all felt the song’s menacing voodoo vamp suited their particular masculine philosophies. Belgian fusion singer Natacha Atlas made it an exotic hymn to the ecstatic. The Animals and the Eels fed on it. Grisly, blood-curdling versions by Tim Curry, Bonnie Tyler, Bette Midler and Marilyn Manson paid rocky homage to the song’s weird combination of the wanton and the wacky. Southern swamp-rock masters Creedence Clearwater Revival opened their 1968 debut album with the song, and their fiendish guitar-hot version is a candidate with Simone’s for the second-best of all time.
